    Nod. Like i've said before, all those suspicious nay sayers think HK line judges are pro china, what a bunch a crap. You are insulting them when u say they are pro communist.

    LOL, Does LCW need eye check - you sound more parochial ? You questioned his rights whereas I mentioned here that perhaps it has to do with eyesight that those calls were bad.

    Cooler, cool it. You have been looking for more arguments that this site needs.

    Maybe it's LCW who needs the eye exam and not everyone else. I mean hey, two tournaments where he seems to have line calls going against him. Maybe it's him who's wrong and not the line judges.

    And honestly, do you think he would have won the match had those 2 close - not biased - calls not been made against him?

    I've been following every single super series event in 2007. Certain players seems to get scot free with all their antics. There are so many chinese players naturally they are more prominent offenders. They are highly skilled players and deserve our respects but things like frequent easy walkover (amongst china's men singles) and not ready when opponents serve (too frequent in both china men singles and doubles) really disappoints me.

    In the HKO, instant replay showed that the shuttle was out and the umpire overruled it. Bad eyesight or favouritism...? When it happens one too many times...well what can I say.

    You have that stupid concept that anyone who starts a thread is allegating something sinister. Wrong man. You have a baggage on your shoulder and it is hard to stop a person like you from mouthing anything you want.

    If LCW needs the eye exam, he wouldn't be a badminton ace now.We don't know what could have happened...but we do know LCW beat both LD and BCL more often than lost in neutral tournaments this year.
    Frankly if I were LCW, I wouldn't waste my knees,my time and energy. I would target to skip CM09, CO09 and HK09 and focus 110% in the other SS next year.

    They are asking you to stop arguing - check the post who started the argument first. What an idiot.

    These sort of things happen everywhere, some places more than others. Some genuine mistakes, others deliberate bias. Sometimes, this bias becomes a stigma for a certain tournament, such that the "away" player automatically assumes deliberate wrong judgement even if the judgement is right or non-deliberate.

    Badminton don't have the money to have professional linejudges. I also doubt we have the money for line-call technology. We can wait for this technology to become cheaper. But now, we just have to go with the flow. Sometimes, it's more interesting this way. And look, even Federer complains about the technology.

    Actually,the issue is not about close calls. In CO, it was about blatantly bad calls These only happen in highly 'nervous' matches.But it reflects on the superiority of the victimised player.

    But the thing I don't get is- isnt tv replay available. Even we at home sometimes get to see how the shuttlecock landed, so why can't this simple technology be used?
    It sure is much fairer compared to the line calls we witness in the China Open especially...
